9780198122616: Hardy's Literary Language and Victorian Philology

This pioneering study is the first detailed exploration of Hardy's linguistic "awkwardness," a subject that has long puzzled critics. Dennis Taylor shows that Hardy's language must be understood as a distinctive response to the philological and literary issues of his time. Deeply influenced by the Victorian historical study of language, Hardy deliberately incorporated into his own writing a sense of language's recent and hidden history, its multiple stages and classes, and its arbitrary motivations. In what is the first major treatment of a writer's relation to the Oxford English Dictionary, Taylor's study also examines the influence on Hardy's language of the founding and development of this period of the OED.

About the Author:

Dennis Taylor is at Boston College, Massachusetts.

Review:


"The most probing contemporary critic of Hardy's verse...Taylor's immensely provocative book is filled with passing insights that amply fulfil its aim of locating Hardy's literary language within the problematics of Victorian linguistic scholarship."--English Literature in Transition


"Through Hardy we look at language and meaning differently, but only after Taylor's book do we have a full sense of what that crucial difference entails."--Victorian Studies

Book Description Oxford University Press, United Kingdom, 1997. Hardback. Book Condition: New. Language: English . Brand New Book ***** Print on Demand *****. Hardy s Literary Language and Victorian Philology is the first detailed exploration of Hardy s linguistic awkwardness , a subject that has long puzzled critics. Dennis Taylor s pioneering study shows that Hardy s language must be understood as a distinctive response to the philological and literary issues of his time. Deeply influenced by the Victorian historical study of language, Hardy deliberately incorporated into his own writing a sense of language s recent and hidden history, its multiple stages and classes, and its arbitrary motivations. Indeed, Taylor argues, Hardy provides an example of how a writer purifies the dialect of the tribe by inclusiveness, by heterogeniety, and by a sense of history which distinguishes Hardy from a more ahistorical, synchronic modernist aesthetic and which constitutes an ongoing challenge to literary language. In what is the first major treatment of a writer s relation to the Oxford English Dictionary, the author also examines the influence on Hardy s language of the founding and development in this period of the OED.
